amongst others, i'm going to record and mix ron carter quartett and iiro rantala in the next couple of weeks - yeah, jazz, but chances i'm allowed to use some of the recordings are much higher, especially when i'm asking in advance (and i'm almost sure iiro woudn't mind).

or: the demo recording i did (and referred to in an earlier post) - once the competition for which the demo way made is over, i guess the pianist would be ok if i posted some of it here.

or: i could do a few pics how i'm setting up mics on pianos.

or: we could go on discussing things from a theoretical point of view.

in any case, i think any of this would need to go into another thread - feel free to start one on favourite piano mic and mix technique and i promise i'll contribute.
It's not even necessary to engage in posting your "own recorded material" if that's a stretch that troubles you or your could simply cite YouTube or Soundcloud or Spotify or similar public/commercial sources which highlight the recorded sounds or methods you respect or endorse. As you say, a new thread devoted to this would be a good idea.
